Competition Review at Club Meeting:  A presentation of judging critiques on all entries will be held at each meeting, with scoring and placement of the top four images.  Scores for photo entries below the top four will not be indicated at the club meeting.  Time will be allocated for discussion in response to judge’s comments and critique.  Images that are not chosen for points may be re-entered again in a subsequent competition.  Images that place for points may not be entered again, except for the annual “People’s Choice” competition.
